Celebrating the Bard's birthday in Britain

On today’s show we take a look at the host of events taking place across the UK to mark Shakespeare's 450th anniversary. Plus, we take you to the French village where impressionism bloomed. Giverny was the home of Claude Monet and every spring it attracts tens of thousands of people who come to see the beautiful gardens that inspired the iconic artist.

Finally, he's been overshadowed for many years by the likes of Manet and Matisse, but now French painter Henri Le Sidaner is finally getting his time in the limelight with the first major retrospective of his work.
